I was wearing a Tie Dye shirt in Las Vegas on August 21st, 2009. Green Day would be playing a show later that night. In the afternoon, Tre walked up to me and said "You better change your shirt before the show. I fucking hate tie dye."

OMG seriously?! That's awful! But you met Tre, so it's not all totally bad?
Um, random fact? Mike has a heart defect.

Tell me I'm overreacting all you want, but I seriously just lost some respect for him.

anyway, When i come around was originally called Better Not Come Around, and has alternate lyrics (which can be heard on youtube),
and Geek Stick Breath used to be called "I Dunno".
on the side of the 39/Smooth LP, it says "James put down that skinhead!"
and in the Slappy vinyl it explains that James was a roadie who eventually wasn't allowed to go to shows because he kept beating up skinheads.

Sick of me was originally just called Sick
Do Da Da was going to be called Stuck With Me
I can see this going on for months....

-The song "The One I Want" is by Billie AND Mike. Says so on the insert with the 1000 Hours EP, but nowhere else
-The 1000 Hours EP has Too Cool! and No Way! scratched into the vinyl
-When the first Sweet Children EP released, it had a pic of Mike's shoes on it. Then the next pressing had the Bug picture, and apparently somewhere it has the mysterious message "What do you think now Mike?" (note: I have yet to prove this...)

Well, it's an unwritten rule that punks hate hippies.
It was a joke, forchristsake
Posted 20 September 2009 - 06:35 PM
It still just seems...wrong, to me.
More proof that Bike is real!
Posted 20 September 2009 - 06:54 PM
Agreed. I have an anit-hippie sign on my door
My sister is a hippie...
And yes, yes you are, lol

Well, you see, he said it with a big grin on his face, so I just couldn't take offense to it.
Well, let me explain what happened.
I walked into sound check, Tre was out by the stage drinking something. I saw him, and I freak out. So this was our conversation:
Tre: Oh hey.
Me: Do you remember me from DC?
Tre: *nods* Yup.
Me: ...we share a birthday!
Me: ...can I shake your hand?
Tre (with a sarcastic look on his face): No, of course you can't shake my hand.
Tre: No, you can't! *walks away*
Me (sarcastically): Jerk!
at the end of the sound check, Tre walks over to us again.
Tre: Who wants my drumsticks?
Me: *raises hand* Me!
Tre: ...You better change your shirt before the show. I fucking hate tie dye. *gives drumsticks to someone else*
at that point, my heart sank. but then I knew I had to do something. so I handed Tre a pair of fuzzy dice.
Tre: Oh, wow! Cool! Thanks! *throws dice back towards drumset and walks away*
Then it was time to leave, but as I was about to leave, Tre walks back over.
Tre: Here, these are for changing your shirt. *hands me a pair of drum sticks*
Me: Oh, wow!!! THANKS TRE!!! =D
So basically, he was being sarcastic. It did hurt a bit, but I'm not mad at him. I mean, I do that to my friends all the time. but it's not like I'm friends with Tre. He's my idol and so it kind of hurt when I finally got to meet him, he was a bit "rude"... but I guess that's just the way he is. I'm the same way. I make sarcastic comments all the time. But hey, I can't complain 'cause he gave me his drumsticks! I think he felt bad after I gave him the dice, which is why he gave me the drumsticks.
haha, omg. i'm not a hippie! I got this shirt for volunteering my time and playing guitar in a play/production that we helped adults with disabilities put on.
On the 21st Century Breakdown FUSE special, Billie says that Mass Hysteria was the first song written for 21st Century Breakdown.
